About

LShift is an independent software development company, founded 2000 in Shoreditch, London, long before Silicon Roundabout or Tech City had even been imagined. Founded by developers and designed to provide the conditions in which the best levels of technical services can be offered to clients, our model has proven successful again and again in the many long-standing relationships we have developed with our clients.

Let’s Run Science! Part iota;

James Uther wrote “In our last jaunt, we had a look at code that take all the various measurements of temperature that have been taken over the last few hundred years, and pull them together into something we can usefully run stats on. The headline finding of all this is that on average, the planet has warmed over… ”

Building a ReactiveUi

Yong Wen Chua wrote “I’d be one of the first few to admit that I am horrible at making UIs. My rather positive experience with working with Knockout made me wonder one day if there was an equivalent in the .NET world where I could piece together a quick application with an actual UI, while wiring up the display… ”
